Greatest Guitarists Ever
« see full list
Joe is the best that I have ever seen or heard. I started listening to all types of music in the mid-50's, especially blues -based guitar starting with Robert Johnson until now. Joe embodies all that is past and present with a unique sound that is unmatched. Each note has a purpose within the songs he plays, some slow, some fast, and each remembered. Albert King, Hendrix, Clapton, and Santana come close, but at this point in time, Joe is the best. Check out the song "The Great Flood" if you don't believe me. It will bring tears to your eyes.
I follow his career since maybe 8 years - and he becomes a better and better songwriter (for ex. "The Ballad Of John Henry" or "Slow Train Coming"). Great is his ability to cover songs and create something new (for ex. "A New Day Yesterday" or "Feelin' Good").
But whatever he does - he is my personal most fascinating and because of this in my opinion the best guitar player alive. Just listen "Woke Up Dreaming", when he plays this song on an acoustic guitar...
should be in the top ten greatest guitar players brilliant blues, rock guitarist a lot better than some of the names in this list! favourite track sloe gin from the album of same name. come on put him on the site and if you haven't heard of him look him up brilliant the kind of guitarist eric clapton would listen to trust me!
WoW I can't believe Bonamassa is this low in the list. To be honest with you the only person I think that can give him any kind of competition is Hendrix... and even then I think Joe is superior. Speed, complexity... sound that just pulls you in. Amazing.
The only reason he is not near the top is that many have not heard him play. I have been to well into the 100s of concerts and have seen many on the list. Although so many are great Bonamassa is amazing, speed, clarity, sound, he has it all.
Joe really is amazing. Discovered him about 4 years ago & became an instant fan. If you enjoy blues rock then this guy has to be the hottest act around today. Saw him live at the Echo Arena Liverpool & blew me away.
people on here should listen to this guy he was on later with jools holland the other night brilliant but he don't get much air play better than most here above him on list even clapton listens to him!
Voted the best guitarist in the world for 3 years from guitarist and blues guitarist. Have you ever seen/heard him play.. Just check out youtube...
I just saw him at the Fox Threater in Detroit. If he played in 60'- 80's, he would have been considered more seriously.
you really should see him at a concert, he really blows your mind so of, with his freaking good solos
I like his style very much. And I'm always happy when I can see Joe Bonamassa live on stage.
I agree with a lot of the list but Joe should certainly be in the top 10.
A wonderful guitarist. Check out his live concert at The Royal Albert Hall on DVD
